Day Trip {September 2017}

The last day of September was a Saturday, and Chris had taken the day off from work. Chris rarely has a free Saturday, so we were determined to do something fun. Everyone had an opinion of how we should spend the day, but after a little deliberation, we settled on spending the day hiking. 

After a bit of research, we decided to spend the day hiking at Susquehannock State Park in Pennsylvania. It was our first time there, and it did not disappoint. We had an excellent time walking the scenic trails. The park has a little over five miles of trails, most of them are easy to travel with children. The Rhododendron Trail was the most difficult to hike, as the path was rough and overgrown in a few spots and poorly marked. However, we enjoyed hiking the Rhododendron Trail, as it was only a little over a mile to walk and had stunning views. 











On our way back to Delaware, we stopped in Maryland at Elk Neck State Park to walk to the Turkey Point Lighthouse. At just under a mile, the hike is easy and pleasant, ending with the beautiful views of the old lighthouse and the Chesapeake Bay. This trail is an old favorite of ours, and I am sure we will visit it again in the future. 






The kids and I are thankful that we got to spend the day with Chris doing something that we all enjoy. Hiking is definitely at the top of our list of favorite day trip activities. 

What is a favorite day trip activity that you have done with your family in the past? What day trip are you hoping to take in the future?
